(Bloomberg) — Short-end U.S. rates have been buoyed by a tightening of Federal Reserve policy and an increase in issuance, and the U.S. Treasury on Monday sold $51 billion of three-month bills at 2 percent, the highest rate for an auction of the tenor since June 2008. Three-month bills in the secondary market already cracked 2 percent earlier this month, but this is the first government auction to be sold at that rate in a decade and bidding from both direct and indirect buyers fell. The soft demand suggests investors preferred the six-month Treasury bill instead.
Yes, the US Treasury 3M bill rate finally is back 2.00%.
But the entire US Treasury Actives curve is not back to where it once belonged.
Get back, Jo Jo (Powell).
